304th Army Air Force Flight Training Detachment, ARMY AIR FORCES CONTRACT FLYING SCHOOL (PRIMARY) at Coleman, Texas
The class of "44-H," their hearts beating with true American spirit, cannot forget those whose presence makes our hearts beat a little faster. Indeed we are thinking more of our families, wives, sweet hearts and friends than ever before. Thus loneliness formerly unknown has crowded itself into a corner of many stout hearts. Still those same hearts, beating proudly, and the souls they feed know why we are away.
Then when that final day of reckoning comes, over Tokio and Berlin, and those forces which have drawn us from home are destroyed we shall return never again to leave those whom we love. It is with the fervent prayer that we shall soon be reunited in victory that the class of "44-H" dedicates this volume of, "The Mister," to those for whom we fight!
THE ARMY AIR CORPS
Off we go into the wild blue yonder, Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder, At 'em boys, give 'er the gun!
Down we dive spouting our flame from under, Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame;
Nothing'll stop the Army Air Corps!
Here's a Toast to the host of those who love the vastness of the sky:
To a friend we send a message of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those who gave their all of old, Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold.
A Toast to the host of men we boast, the Army Air Corps.
Off we go into the wild sky yonder, Keep the wings level and true.
If you'd live to be a gray haired wonder, Keep the nose out of the blue!
Flying men guarding the Nation's border, We'll be there followed by more.
In echelon we carry on,
Nothing'll stop the Army Air Corps.
